Re: What causes DEATH WOBBLE ??????

Many years back it was explained to me that the steering tie rod ends/idler arms etc will turn on their axis from the play in the joints. This play allows the effected wheel to toe in and out rapidly thus the death wobble. His fix was to rotate the ends in opposite directions so they gently locked travel thus disallowing the joints to move unnecessarily. Never had death wobble on my truck ......
